Let's see, a "Sport Wagon" - that's sure an oxymoron - loaded up with
electronic gadgets - another bad automotive choice, especially in a
non-Japanese car - add a critical owner and one has a sure recipe for a
failed "ownership experience".
Owner surveys find M-B quality to be only "average" of all cars, not
just high priced luxury cars, so where's the surprise here, especially
when the quantity of technology is above average?
Not all M-Bs are like this one but remember, these are just cars, built
on an assembly line, mostly by robots that are very accurate in their
work but not judgmental as to the appearance of the outcome.
Not one mention of this car's driving quality, only its faults, mostly
electronic, so be happy that you will be free of it next year and can
buy a proper gadget laden Lexus whose fit and finish will be better and
will include flawless electronics.
We put up with the second rate quality of M-B's "bleeding edge"
electronics to drive a car that's superior on the road. That's the
choice - and its cost.
